Having the perspective to see an opportunity and the talent to create value from that opportunity


The willingness to do something and the commitment to see it through even when the outcome is not guaranteed.


A group of people who see themselves connected in some important way; individuals that are part of a greater whole.

About Us

Founded in 2011, Enactus Ireland is a charitable organisation which develops future talent by enabling third level students to create, and implement, social entrepreneurial projects which positively impact our local and global communities.
Our students are trained, guided and supported by educators and business leaders.As well as using their innovative and creative energies to positively change the lives of others, our students also develop the leadership, interpersonal and practical skills necessary for the workplace.

An annual national competition showcases our students’ social entrepreneurial projects, and adds a competitive element to our programme. Each year, a national champion goes on to represent Ireland at the prestigious Enactus World Cup.



Every crisis creates opportunity, every struggle offers the chance to rediscover. Everything we do is born from the ability to see potential where others can’t.


Meaningful change is not easy. It requires the ability to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles and face often daunting challenges. We have the persistence to do what it takes to achieve the results we seek.


We are passionate about seeking new perspectives and challenging long­standing assumptions because we know effective leadership requires continuous learning.


The willingness to try, fail and learn on the journey toward creating something new is just as critical as the passion to succeed. There is no substitute for being willing to lead—especially when the territory being covered is new and the outcome is uncertain.


There is no greater force for change than a team of people who are personally invested in each other, and in the lives of the people who their work is intended to serve.


Every initiative or project we undertake will be judged by the only measure that matters: how effectively we create lasting and meaningful progress in the lives of those we serve.
